The Seattle Seahawks pulled off an incredible and epic come-from-behind victory to defeat the Green Bay Packers and win the NFC Championship Sunday to advance to the Superbowl.

In case you missed the amazing series of events that brought the Seahawks back from the edge of oblivion, here are the seven plays you need to see.

Fake field goal for the touchdown

The Seahawks comeback began as they were down 16-0, late in the third quarter. Canadian punter Jon Ryan pretended to set up a field goal attempt, but instead he threw a touchdown pass to Garry Gilliam to earn Seattle's first points of the game.

With this play, the Seahawks' comeback began.

Lynch carries the weight of 2 teams

The Packers responded with a field goal to get the score to 19-7 by the fourth quarter, but that didn't stop the Seahawks. Marshawn Lynch symbolized the resolve of Seattle, carrying players from both sides as he ran for an important first down.

Touchdown with 2 minutes to go

It was getting down to the wire as the Seahawks sat at third and goal with just over two minutes left in the game. Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson faked the handoff and ran the ball in for the touchdown to bring the score to 19-14.

Onside kick recovery

With the Seahawks short five points and two minutes left in the game, Seattle attempts the onside kick with very beneficial results. The Seahawks recover the kick to regain possession, making the comeback a real possibility. The ball bounced off of the helmet of Packers tight end Brandon Bostick before being caught by the Seahawks' Chris Matthews. Lucky bounce for the Seahawks.

Lynch runs in the touchdown

With a minute and a half to go, Marshawn Lynch takes things into his own hands, making a big play by rushing the ball 24 yards for a touchdown to give the Seahawks the lead. Seattle is in control and leading for the first time of the game.

The 2-point conversion

With a one-point lead after Lynch's touchdown, the Seahawks successfully go for the two-point conversion instead of kicking in the extra point. With this strategic move, Seattle has a three-point lead, ensuring that the Packers would need more than a field goal to win the game.

Touchdown in OT

The Packers were able to score a field goal with less than 20 seconds in the game to force overtime, tying things up at 22 a piece. But that was all the Packers could do as Wilson threw the long ball shortly into the extra frame, connecting with wide receiver Jermaine Kearse for a 35 yard touchdown and the victory.

From down by 16 to winning in overtime, the Seahawks came from way behind to earn their ticket back to the Superbowl.
